    Hi,

    Someone told me that the sentences below were not good English. Could anyone explain why? I don't see any problem.

    1) Today's homework was easy.

    2) His eyesight is poor.

    Thank you,

    I see no problem with either sentence either, Sus. There is a problem with your introduction though: ...sentences below were not...

    I agree, also "I don't see any problems" or "I don't see a problem"

    Both look fine to me; for the second sentence, you could also say "He has poor eyesight" or more informally, "He doesn't see very well".

    Hi, Mister Micawber.

    Thank you for your help. I didin't see any problem but I wanted to make sure, because it came from a translator. Anyway, I appreciate your help!
